  3. Delightful, Merisi! Your haiku and photo pair beautifully...The saturation of color and heavy imagery of scent in the poem makes for a heady, sensual experience here. Thanks so much for join us. Hope you had fun. Many seem to be enjoying this event a lot and wish it to return--I think it will. :o) Happy Day!

  7. I didn't realize how abundant lilacs were in Vienna. Unfortunately, they aren't native to our part of Texas. These are such lovely photos, Merisi. They take me away from my world every day. Thank you.

  8. Love how the color of the haiku text picks up the colours of the two photographs of reddish lilac, the haiku making a simple connection.
